“An Economy of Dreams – VI” / A Memorable Fancy #305

[Neuroscientists find a way to record dreams as the dreamer experienced them.]

     “Most people, when awakened, haven’t remembered all their dreams; that gives us an advantage.

     “‘We have a recording,’ we tell them. ‘We remember your dreams, even when you don’t. Just last week you dreamed you were disloyal. No, we won’t tell you how you were disloyal; that’s classified. But I’ll just say that it was an original kind of disloyalty, very threatening, using a deadly new kind of technology that could wipe out millions.’ – and then the clincher: I ask them ‘How did you know we were developing this kind of weapon, anyway?’

     “Then they confess, most of them, guilty or not.”00 Seventh Effect front cover small image
